“Astrology is the complete repository of man’s psychological knowledge”

Carl Jung

Astrology, when studied from an esoteric, evolutionary and spiritual perspective, is an incredibly accurate and valuable tool that, when the teachings are personally applied, enables access to the subconscious and super- conscious mind. Our birth chart indicates our potential. It also provides accurate information as to the psychological lessons we have incarnated to identify and overcome.

Since 1987 Ashtara has used astrology as an accelerated learning tool to gain greater self-awareness. She realised that for things to change externally first she must change internally.

She learned to become aware of her self-destructive psychology and transform it. As her self-awareness increased she took personal responsibility for the way she creates her life.  She teaches her students to do the same.

Our old way of being no longer fulfils or enriches life. When it’s time for psychological and spiritual growth, challenging situations arise in our life. They provide the opportunity for us to learn about ourselves. This inner journey requires the development of self-awareness and the willingness to take personal responsibility for all we think, feel and create. This inner revolution occurs according to cosmic timing. It’s dependent upon the specific relationship of celestial bodies to each other, and the effect of their energetic force field on individuals, and the collective consciousness. Ageless Wisdom identifies and defines this cosmic system and provides information as to how best to manage it.

Ashtara began teaching her perspective on astrology in 1992. Since then she’s written many articles and books on the subject.

Her classes and workshops are enlightening, fun, purposeful and filled with insights. Each one is designed to assist students raise their levels of self-awareness.

To aid student’s personal and spiritual development Ashtara wrote three astrology books titled Your Recipe for Empowerment through Spiritual Astrology. These three books, Volumes One, Two and Three, guide students to work with their birth chart to gain greater self-awareness. These simply written books are accelerated learning tools. Students who cannot attend classes also regard them highly. They need to be studied and the teachings applied to daily life.  They contain valuable information; stories to demonstrate the written concepts, and exercises to help students integrate the teachings.

“I started studying your book and my chart in earnest a few days ago, and I just wanted to let you know that the effect has been immediate! I’ve barely started and yet I can feel movement already in my heart, mind and soul, beyond that which I have experienced before in my (this) life/spiritual journey and this is because of your guidance through your words and teaching.

I feel such a magnetic pull to your words and teachings that I can hardly describe, and I sincerely hope that I can continue my studies in spiritual astrology with you, as far as it will take me in this life.

Thank you, Ashtara, with much love.”

Belinda Burman

Some esoteric principles govern her understanding and are:

  • We humans are, in essence, divine
  • We are each a fragment of the Universal Mind, the Mind of God.
  • We have a lower and higher nature.
  • Our higher nature is that of spirit. When realization and acceptance of the magnificence of our higher nature occurs, life changes. We can no longer operate unconsciously, robotically replaying the same old fear-based psychological games. We begin to function as a soul.

Ashtara, Thank you for an up-close, personal and revealing journey through your classes.  I am eternally grateful”.


“What a fabulous workshop – thought it was perfectly presented in a fun way (Ashtara style) – a reminder that we often take life too seriously- absolutely loved your way of combining astrology with acting and a sense of humour – it really moved things along”

Nuria Breier

“Ashtara, thank you so much for yet another fabulous workshop. I came away with a much deeper understanding of how I can use astrology as a tool to deepen my self-awareness and to make the right choices to create health and harmony in my life. By the end of the day I felt very peaceful, joyful and energized!! Thank you!”

The Evolutionary Ascension Process in Relation to Astrology I refer to an excerpt in a personal message from the Pleiadians, shared on 15 January 2023: There is a science behind this human evolutionary development that is becoming known to many open minded souls. We, and others residing in the finer light frequencies, have your best interests at heart. Our technology is far more advanced. We share it through scribes such as yourself who have the mental capacity to comprehend. Receiving the above excerpt from a Pleiadian transmission I felt the need to briefly share my understanding of the advanced science...

2023 New Year chart. 12.00.59 am AEST, Brisbane, Qld Australia The first thing I notice is that Venus, the goddess of love, beauty and values is conjunct Pluto, Lord of the Underworld. Feminine values undermined? Hmm! Immediately my mind goes to a recent client. A lawyer, she works in a prestigious inner city male dominated law firm where the focus is on commercial litigation. She’s unhappy. Her values are being threatened. Not only is she experiencing a demeaning attitude towards women, but is aghast by the underhand corruption and conniving that takes place. Her work is valuable to the firm...

2023 Numerological, Tarot and Astrological Influences These three ancient modalities are tools to awaken our unconscious to consciousness so we can acquire self-knowledge, a thorough understanding of ourselves. They act like a spiritual mirror in which we can recognise and examine our inner nature. We learn to realise that, in order to change the world we experience, we first need to change ourselves. To do so we need to know ourselves so we know the habits and old psychological programmes that need to change. To experience a harmonious future depends upon the attainment of higher levels of self-awareness that can...

Sensationalism v Discernment Discernment, a Virgo quality, is something many of us are needing to learn at this current time. Observing the sensationalism regularly present in both main stream media and alternate media, notice how it is being used as a tool to ‘hook’ the gullible. Even the weather is daily sensationalised. Why the need for sensationalism? What’s behind these constant distractions? Even astrology is being sensationalised by some. The dark seeks control over human minds and will take every measure they can to do so. Money and power are their agenda. Whether the measures taken are covert or overt...

Higher Vibrational Light Realms We humans are not only our physical body. The first lesson I teach in my astrology courses is based on our four energy bodies and how they connect to our elemental nature. I use the drawing of a stick figure to demonstrate. Sometimes I add boobs and hips and usually drew a big smile on the face. The figure signifies the physical body and the Earth element. I draw it in green - the colour of the leaves on Earth. I draw a line of blue around the physical body. This colour represents our emotional body....

In reference to the Pleiadian transmission above, I offer my astrological perspective. During the many years of studying astrology and applying all I was learning to myself, using myself as a guinea pig, I realised there would have to be a higher vibrational cosmic system that becomes available when enough people develop similarly. I questioned, knowing the evolution of our species must continue. Our soul’s journey is to return to the Source from which it came - the highest realm of Cosmic Light. I understand our current astrology system is an incredibly accurate tool and a foundational spring board to...

Joyful, Creative Expression Where in the birth chart can we look to find the best way to create a joyful life, expressing ourselves according to our soul’s true nature? There are a few avenues but primarily it is where our Sun is positioned in our birth chart, by sign and house. The Sun symbolises our core self. The glyph for the Sun is a circle with a dot in the centre that can be seen as a symbol of the soul (the dot) existing within this physical reality. I like to extend this interpretation. The circle also can be viewed...

Mars Retrograde On  30 October transit Mars, travelling through Gemini, turned retrograde. What does this mean? I’ll generalise then share specifics. Mars is the planet of dynamism, the desire for action, sexuality and thrusting forward into initiating new beginnings. Retrograde planets can involve experiences of living with a dulled sense of time. Things feel familiar but vague. Should you have a retrograde planet in your birth chart  you can regress back to former lifetimes. e.g. When visiting a new country/city or place, you may feel as if you’ve been there before. You probably have, in a different lifetime. Vague and...
